About Art BankWe are a creative platform for the town of Shepton Mallet and surrounding villages, offering opportunities to support creative wellbeing. The Bank offers a friendly, nurturing and inclusive space where people can get together, talk and collaborate.
The Art Bank works at improving social cohesion in Shepton Mallet and beyond by offering a hub for creative connection and collaboration. It houses the Art Bank Cafe and Rubbish Art Project, a not for profit organization that takes waste materials from local businesses, charity shops and individuals and helps local artists and people transform them into thought-provoking art. Central to our aims is environmental messaging, a reconsideration of one-use plastics and other materials.
